Sunday’s Ravens-Rams game was a blowout on the field, with Baltimore jumping out to a 21-0 first-quarter lead and cruising to a 37-7 win. But at least the Rams beat the Ravens in the fine department.
The NFL issued a total of six different fines, for five players, for illegal hits in the Ravens-Rams game, and only one of those fines went to a Ravens player.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Rams receiver Danario Alexander was fined $5,000 for roughing the kicker on a Ravens extra point, Rams guard Jacob Bell was fined $7,500 for an illegal chop block, Rams tackle Jason Smith was fined $7,500 for facemasking and Rams cornerback Bradley Fletcher was handed two $7,500 fines, one for a late hit and one for a horse collar tackle.
Terrell Suggs was the only Raven fined, getting docked $7,500 for facemasking.
Add it all up, and the five players lost a total of $42,500 in income for the game. All in a day’s work in the NFL.
